Q&A with Scott Schmeltzer


On Monday October 10th Scott Schmeltzer visited us on the ahlahasa team. Mr. Schmeltzer re-read his column addressing girls’ sports (which can be read here) and a Q&A session followed. Some of the members of ahlahasa had concerns with the column regarding sexism. They believed that he was bashing the boys’ sports and not providing enough reason as to why the article was addressed to boys when it focused on girls’ sports. Mr. Schmeltzer respectfully answered our questions to the best of his abilities and apologized for any sexist remarks that could have been unintentionally interpreted by readers.

Soon after our discussion Mr. Schmeltzer wrote a column regarding our concerns. You can view that column here.
